Houston, we have sun!

It's back. The sun is back. And a day sooner than expected. What a relief!

So I spent a few minutes yesterday starting a new project.

Using up some old acrylic. Five cables, C6F, on size 7 needles. Practicing cabling without a cable needle. A six row repeat is just enough to keep it interesting and easy enough to tell when it's time to cable.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.

Hi KnitDad, I really like your scarf. I am knitting one with 6 cables as well, but dont know what to do with the end borders. Did you make a scallop on yours? Where did you get the pattern, or do you mind sharing how you did it?

I never did finish this scarf. I'm sure it's around here somewhere though. There isn't really a pattern for this. It's just a series of cables divided by some purl stitches. No border. It looks like it scallops on the end but that's just from the cables drawing in like ribbing.

I hope you find this response since I have no other way of contacting you as there is no email address in your comment.
